In 2020

COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the Turnover of the establishments of non-financial enterprises in the Autonomous Region of Madeira

The Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM), after having released final information from 2020 on enterprises last March, makes available today on its website, the definitive data on establishments of non-financial enterprises in the Region for that same year.

With the increasing importance of large brands, mainly in the retail sector - as shown by annual information from the Commercial Units of Relevant Size project - information on establishments becomes significantly important. It should be remembered that an enterprise with its head office anywhere in the country may have several establishments located in different parts of the territory. Thus, there are establishments located in the Autonomous Region of Madeira belonging to an enterprise headquartered outside the Autonomous Region of Madeira, and there are also enterprises in the Autonomous Region of Madeira with establishments on the mainland and/or in the Autonomous Region of the Azores.
